His parentage was noble, of the Norse line of the Kings of Dublin, the royal house of Argyll and the great Ard Ri, High King of Ireland. But with the coming of the Northmen, his family fortunes had fallen miserably. The Gaels despaired of ever being free. When all hope was gone, Somerled rose to the fore, sweeping across Argyll and the Isles like a fast-moving storm, drawing the disenfranchised to him in great numbers--the Scots, the Gaels and the Irish who longed for one to lead them.
Having lost one wife, Somerled had no thought to seek another, much less did he expect to find love. Yet one look at Ragnhild galloping on a magnificent white horse across the green hills of Man and he never forgot her. Olaf the Red, King of Man and the Isles, had plans for his only daughter that did not include marriage to an upstart foreign Gael.
Brilliant in strategy and fearless in battle, Somerled began retaking his ancestral lands, driving away the invaders and freeing the people from the Norse stranglehold. In doing so, he would win the title Somerle Mor, Somerled the Mighty, Lord of Argyll, Kintyre and Lorne. But could he win the heart of a Norse king's daughter and convince her father to give him her hand?
Coming this summer!
